The wait for Perfect Dark on the Xbox 360 has been worth it, but don't hand over your 800 Microsoft Points expecting a modern FPS. This is old-school gaming, with none of the modern day handholding you're used to, but it's jam-packed with gaming goodness. The campaign can be frustrating due to a lack of direction, but it's still full of great moments, and the multiplayer is as much fun as it ever was.
Perfect Dark is no longer the pinnacle of console shooters, but it's clear why it was held in such high regard. Yes, it's better when played while wearing rose-tinted spectacles, but anyone who enjoyed the original already owns a pair.
